    I don’t know if you can look at a guy’s mistakes in a vacuum like that. For example, sure - Koepka had two double bogeys to Woods’ zero. But he also had two eagles to Woods’ zero.

    You can just as easily say that Koepka, and the two others at -12, finished second because Woods hammered his shot on 16 to four feet.

    Best smartass take I wish I’d come up with: Tiger isn’t “back” yet, he hasn’t won a full-field event.

    The last is absolutely true. But I have heard countless pros over many years that the key to winning majors is to never make double bogies.

    They covered up a lot of Amanda Balionis. Not sure I ever saw her from below the neck.

    Sunday’s final round of the Masters, which was moved up several hours to avoid inclement weather, earned an 7.7 overnight rating on CBS — down 11% from last year (8.7), but up a tick from 2017 (7.6). CBS began coverage at 9 AM ET, compared to a 2 PM start in previous years.

    There were storm sirens going off in the background just as CBS Radio was winding up its coverage.

    This is key though: "An encore presentation of the final round delivered a 3.4 overnight from 3-7 PM ET. Combined, the live and encore telecasts grossed an 11.1 overnight. That would be the highest for the Masters since 2010, which marked Woods’ return to golf following his marital infidelity scandal (12.0)."

    How many olds didn't/ weren't paying attention and just tuned in at the normal time and watched the replay?
